Kabana Grill, 869 W. Layton Ave., closed quietly this past week.
However, it’s not the end of the road for the restaurant, which has served up delicious Indian and Pakistani food since December 2013. In fact, beginning Dec. 30 the owners simply relocated their business to 1828 N. Farwell Ave., the home of sister restaurant, K2 Grill.
K2 Grill, which opened in January 2015, is owned and operated by Uzma Nadeem along with her sister-in-law and business partner, Tina Akbar, the owner of Kabana Grill. The new restaurant, which combines both businesses, may be renamed in the coming weeks.
According to Akbar, the restaurant is currently operating with the K2 Grill menu; however there are plans for a new menu to be released by the end of January. The new offerings, Akbar notes, may include a daily lunch buffet as well as a Sunday brunch offering (something that was a regular offering at Kabana Grill).
Akbar says that a grand opening celebration is being planned for launch in the next couple of weeks.
In the meantime, diners can continue to enjoy the regular dinner menu, weekend buffet and Pronto lunch menu, which includes combination plates starting at $9.99.
Hours for the new restaurant are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, with a lunch buffet available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Both takeout and delivery are available.
